Under Canvas is a small mobile tented camp moving inside Serengeti [never while guests are in] along the ancestral migratory routes of the great migration. From the first or second week of June up to mid of July the camp is set up in western Serengeti. Being camp movements pre-planned in order to book the camping area with the National Park Authority the proximity to the wildebeest migration cannot be garanteed.

The camp is set up with the usual professionalism and competence of &Beyond offering high servicing standard.

It consists of 9 safari tents, attended by a private butler, well spaced out in order to grant an adequate level of privacy. Furnishing solutions are simple and linear. Each tent has en suite bathroom with flush loo and copper sink with relative water reservoir while hot water for the shower is supplied morning and evening at the time agreed with the camp staff. Electricity is supplied by solar panels and accumulated into batteries for night supply however there are no sockets in the rooms. Technology is intentionally kept to a minimum for an unforgettable African experience.

The camp is complemented by a central mess tent with lounge and dining area and by the unfailing campfire. Meals can be served privately under the starry sky .

To us it makes sense to plan to visit the Serengeti western corridor already from May when early crossing might occur. July is quite a difficult month as far as forecast on migration are concerned. Statistically between the end of June and beginning of July the wildebeest migration, fragmented in several herds, abandons the western corridor and move to Serengeti Mara. In July, having to chose between western and northern Serengeti we would rater opt to the latter one since, migration apart, it offers particularly scenic landscapes crossed by the Mara River and more tracks compared to the western corridor.
